Sober For: 4 Years & 2 Days
What it was like?
Addiction was like living in hell and doomed to repeat yourself everyday for the rest of your life, or even like a miserable filled Groundhog Day, doing the same things and expecting different results. Always trying to escape reality and feel normal, because chemicals/substances were the only way I knew that would work but ended up making my problem worse.
I lost my husband, kids, and ended up a rock bottom. I had three DUI’s back to back and did jail time, went to rehab and sober living. Trying to rebuild my life from scratch from the bottom up.
What it is like now?
I see my kids regularly, I am now a certified recovery coach, and going back soon for continued education to work my dream job in recovery.. I found my purpose and God is molding me into the woman I’ve always been meant to be!
